    Going by the thefts, it appears that the existing security arrangements for these ancient idols at temples are not upto the mark and needs to be tightened.


    Ancient idols theft: 107 recovered sculptures displayed at TN temple




    The idols have been displayed to allow the public to identify and check the originality of the idols belonging to the temples in their villages.

    In a move to help with their identification, 107 recovered ancient idols have been kept for inspection by the public at Pasupatheeswarar temple in Pandanallur village near Kumbakonam.

    On February 14, the statues were taken from the Nageswaraswamy temple in Kumbakonam to Pandanallur under the supervision of the Idol Wing of the Tamil Nadu Police.

    “The arrangements have been made to allow the public to identify and check the originality of the idols belonging to the temples in their villages. In this regard, village elders and temple authorities from surrounding villages have been invited to the temple in Pandanallur,” explains Idol Wing DSP Ramesh.


    Ancient bronze idols belonging to Kizhkattur Vajradhambeswar temple, Aaralur Vishwanadhaswami temple, Kurichi Mariamman temple and Amridhakadeswar temple, Neivaasal Thadakapuriswarar temple, Marathur Sarvalokanadhaswamy temple and Serugudi Virupaatishwarar temple have been kept on display, so that village elders and temple authorities can confirm that they are the original idols and have also not been altered in any way.


    At the end of the display period, IG Pon Mannikavel will assess the results of the inspection and make a formal announcement to the public.
